for it. as late as september the pentagon was saying they were still trying to understand what the law was. in december they hadn't started. just a few weeks ago they start coming out now with all these dooms day scenarios. the reality is that the president could have stopped it. the house of representatives has passed not one, but two bills that would have stopped it. the senate has done nothing. martha, when the president talks about a balanced budget, most americans think what he means we balance the amount of money coming in with the amount of money coming out. martha: right. >> that is not what the president talks about with balance. martha: that is interesting, jay carney quoted alan simpson but the other thing he did not quote that alan simpson said, if this president does not get serious about deficit reduction, including taking on medicare and social security and reforming those entitlement programs, that he will have a failed presidency. do you think that is a message republicans have done a good job getting across? >> well, martha, i think that it is very difficult sometimes

-minute negotiations and each says the other is playing politics. the pentagon would take a major hit. senator john mccain says today that the impact on the military would be unconscionable and could mean longer tours of duty for troops in afghanistan. the nation's governors, democrat and republican, anticipate possible economic effects in their states. >> all of this is a concern for our respective states, if they do nothing or what the alternatives could be. are starting to comeifficult out of it and it is getting better and unfortunately the sequester could put us right back where we were. >> the sequester takes effect march 1 unless congress takes action to stop it so far, no action. >> no action? no one talking to each other? what a surprise. >>heather: think the budget battles in washington, dc will not hit you in the government warning now that if sequestration occurs it could mean a furlough of meat inspection workers which could cause trouble at the meat market. >> politics could get in the way of being able to eat the foods we like to eat. >> if this happens, the prices could go up a little
